Course Description

CE Course Description

The problems that children develop due to child abuse and neglect have negative impacts that emerge throughout the lifespan, affecting their chances to succeed in school, work, and relationships. This continuing education course was developed using collaborative information from the US Department of Education, Administration on Children, Youth, and Families in order to provide information about the complex ways in which risk and protective factors interact within the context of a child’s family, community, and society to affect both the incidence and consequences of child abuse and neglect. Strategies to help educators and other significant adults implement a protective factors approach and work with family members to promote child well-being are addressed, as well practical ways to protect children.

CE Course Objectives

1. Identify essential factors that contribute to overall well-being in children and families, and evaluate risk and protective factors for child abuse and neglect.

2. Review the effects of child abuse and neglect, as well as what can be done to address it when it occurs.

2. Discuss how families, educators, community members, and societal circumstances impact both the incidence and consequences of child abuse and neglect.

4. Outline strategies to implement a protective factors approach that will engage and strengthen families.

5. Describe ways to promote nurturing and attachment, parental resilience, social connections, and concrete support when working with children and families.

6. Summarize steps to build meaningful community partnerships to prevent child maltreatment, including tips for working with specific groups.

7. Examine specific tools that members of the child’s support network can provide to parents to help ensure child safety and well-being.
